There is no information in the question about what price the coffee is actually sold at. We only have the cost and that makes both statements insufficient.

To know about the profit/loss, one should know the cost price (CP) and selling price (SP).
Statement 1 is not sufficient as without knowing the CP and SP.
Statement 2 is not sufficent as it just tells us the Cost Price. Without SP, this statement is not sufficient!
